Trustwave Government Solutions attains FedRAMP "In Process – PMO Review” designation

Jan. 18, 2024
TGS is the first and only pure-play Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider to achieve this designation

Chicago – January 18, 2024 – Trustwave Government Solutions (TGS), a leading Federally-focused cybersecurity provider and the wholly-owned subsidiary of Trustwave, today announced its achievement of the “In Process Program Management Office (PMO) Review" designation by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) for its Government Fusion platform. TGS is the first and only pure-play Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider to achieve this designation.

"We are very proud to reach this milestone that validates the security and strength of our platform," said TGS President Bill Rucker. "No other pure-play MDR provider has chosen to make this significant investment in the Public Sector. Trustwave Government Fusion is the only solution hosted in GovCloud with FedRAMP In Process PMO review, a government agency authority to operate, and a 100 percent cleared Global Threat Analyst team servicing the mission 24x7x365." 

Trustwave Government Fusion is the platform used for Trustwave's MDR and Co-Managed SIEM/SOC (3SIEM) services designed for Federal agencies and clients who require US-only based personnel in a government community cloud environment. 

Gaining FedRAMP status is a pivotal advancement for TGS, as any cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) solution utilized by the federal government requires FedRAMP certification. Following Trustwave's final FedRAMP approval, the company will also become a StateRAMP-authorized vendor. 

Under the sponsorship of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Trustwave's FedRAMP authorization process positions the company to meet the Department of Defense's stringent "US eyes only" requirement for the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). TGS anticipates receiving full authorization in early 2024.     

"Achieving this milestone opens the door for TGS to continue delivering its award-winning managed security services to federal/state/local governments and federal government contractors with a solution that meets or exceeds their elevated security requirements," Rucker said. 

TGS's MDR and 3SIEM solutions offer 24x7 real-time monitoring, threat detection, threat hunting, intelligence, remediation capabilities, and SOAR functionality seamlessly integrated with a client's existing security technologies. The platform ensures scalability and straightforward onboarding, making it an ideal choice for clients seeking augmentation or Managed SOC services at a significantly lower cost compared to traditional on-premises SOC solutions. 

TGS is already available on the FedRAMP Marketplace website.
